The Russian Foreign Minister used sharp words to denounce Israel Air Force activity in Syria in response to the downing of a Russian jet by Syrian anti-aircraft weapon systems.

"Moscow views the Israeli attack in Syria as irresponsible which exposed the Ilyushin aircraft to danger and lead to the deaths of 15 crew members. Russia will take all necessary measures to eliminate threats to our security and military in their fight against terrorism," the Russian Foreign Minister wrote on twitter.

The statement was released while an Israeli delegation led by the commander of the IAF Maj.-Gen Amikam Norkin was en route to meet with his counterparts in Moscow.


The Israeli delegation is expected to present photographic intelligence relating to the event, including preoperation photos, proof of Iranian attempts to transfer strategic weapons to Hezbollah and establish its positions in Syria, and the Israeli findings after the investigation.
